Webb Smiths, BD Skull waves, Ron's Ceramics, Tracker Stimulator/Khiro insert bushings, & 1/2" risers/front wedged - 1 sweet ride! - very nimble for a longer wheelbase.

That looks like to be an awesome cruiser/bowl board.

Let's blow the dust off this thread.

I've been looking for a deck for my Revenge trucks.  I had them on a cambered longboard, but it just didn't feel right.  The step down with these trucks is already pretty big.  The camber just made it bigger.  So, I thought I'd try the trucks on a Shogo longboard.  Well, these trucks are so darn turny, I don't think they're right for the Shogo longboard either.  The board is downright squirrley with those trucks.  I think those trucks need to go on a deck with a longer wheelbase. 

I don't know how El Jeffe rides the Revenge trucks in bowls.  It would just scare me to death.

Anyway, what we got here are the Revenge Alpha I trucks, Sonic Red Dragons and hand cut BDS grip.  The wheels can stay, but I think the trucks got to go.

Good advice, as always, my friend.

A friend of mine is in the market for a longboard and asked if he could try out some of mine.  I wanted let him sample lots of different trucks, so I threw the Revenge on the Shogo mainly so he could try out the trucks.  I thought the trucks might be a good match for the deck, but not for me.

I also had some Seismics laying around, so I put them on a Q10 with some Mellow Yellow Dragons.  Wow, what a fun sidewalk surfer.  It turns so well, it's amazing.  I had the Seismics on a longboard, but didn't like the feel on a longboard.  I thought they would be better for a little shorter wheelbase and I think I was right on that count.

I also tried out some 81A Abec 11 Flashbacks that I bought from someone here on the forum.  I learned the hard way that just a little more wheel hardness makes a much less forgiving wheel.  I hit a pebble at low speed and crashed.  Ouch, that hurt.  I think 78A wheels would have rolled right over it.

It seems the worst slams I take are always on flat ground.
